COUGAR TOWN “Keeping Me Alive” Review

Cougar Town Season 2 Episode 5 - Keeping Me Alive

Allie believes that she is smarter than the rest of the cul-de-sac crew who find great joy in playing the Penny Can game where you try to toss a penny into a can. She probably started to believe she was smarter than them when they declared Mexico an island because it is surrounded by water and has beaches. The rest of the crew thinks she is wrong and sets out to prove that she is one of them. They finally get her with questions about a famous architect, where Afghanistan is located and the definition of a bond. Jules, Andy and Grayson chant "one of us" in Allie’s face. Later, Travis tells Allie that he and she have the toughest jobs because they have to pretend to feel superior and better than the others.

During the Penny Can Truth Game, Allie teases Bobby about the fact that he still collects alimony from Jules. Bobby consults Andy regarding his finances and decides he will not take anymore alimony from Jules. In fact, he throws a no more alimony party where Jules serves margaritas with crushed aspirin on the rim of the glasses. It is at the party that Jules finds out from Andy that Bobby gave up his health insurance to be able to live without the alimony. Of course she finds this out moments before Bobby jumps into the pool only to land on his shoulder on the cement. Feeling guilty, Jules offers him a job with her so she has a way to give him money. However, she doesnt really want him working there and just wants to give him busy work. Left to his own devices though, Jules comes back to find the office filled with people drinking beers with her face on it and destroying the place. "Jules Cobb – Drink Me In" is Bobby’s slogan. Jules finally admits that she likes that Bobby needs her, but that she doesn’t need him. Bobby wonders if Jules will ever forgive him for what he did to her and their marriage.
